This course produces best results when delivered in company.


The 5S System of Workplace Organisation is a five step approach to creating an excellent work environment. This 1-day workshop is an ideal opportunity to learn about a very simple but powerful approach that can help you to create highly organised and efficient workplaces. The 5S approach is so effective that many companies now see the 5S System as a way of life and the best way to do business. These companies come from all sectors and industries, including the service industry. The common phrase is this: “If you want to provide top-class products and services, you must start with a top class working environment”

This workshop will use an extended simulation to develop the 5S’s and create that favourable environment. It will illustrate the benefits of visual information and also give the opportunity to develop visual controls in both manufacturing and office areas. Throughout the workshop participants will use practical production examples to help develop the 5S’s, illustrate the benefits of visual information and give participants the opportunity to develop visual controls in any manufacturing process.
